Name and Twitter handle: Rishad, @FreeRishad
Occupation: Social Media Marketing Manager for the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel / Blogger / Marketer Extraordinaire
What do you like most about your job? I like that I can be creative, meet new people, engage with customers and fans and that everyday is completely different. Also the fact that it’s OK for me to be on multiple social networks during work hours is a bonus!
A notable moment on Twitter? When I finally realized Twitter was so much cooler than Facebook.
Your best tweet: “I would click on your link but the #Blackberry browsing experience sucks too much”
What did you want to be growing up? A professional basketball player. I was confident I could at least make it on the Vancouver Grizzlies but I’m not sure if that says much about my skills….
If you could have dinner with 1 person (live or dead) who would it be? George Dubya Bush. I think he’d be a pretty interesting character to chat with + I’d have plenty of questions for him.
Your claim to fame: Being featured in this post!!
Do you know of a hidden gem in our city? Pizzeria Farina on 915 Main Street! I think they might have one of the best slices in Vancouver. It’s a small hole in the wall pizza joint with a funky atmosphere and a pie that’s to-die-for! (sorry @Erin_Ireland I stole your line!)
If you were a superhero, who would you be and why? The Hulk for his super strengths!! (Or Jeremy Lin for the same reason… #Linsanity)
